ESPN Sports WEPN-F (98.7 ESPN RADIO)/NEW YORK's midday "HAHN AND HUMPTY" with ALAN HAHN and former ISLANDERS goalie RICK DIPIETRO will be telecast in a nightly one-hour "highlights show" during the summer on cable's MSG NETWORK. The simulcast will air MONDAY through THURSDAY from MAY 23rd through SEPTEMBER 8th.
“RICK and I have often said -- ‘If only people could see the fun we have in the studio while doing the radio show’ -- so the telecast gives fans that exclusive opportunity,” said HAHN. “It's been great being part of the MSG Networks family and I am excited to continue that relationship with the ‘HAHN & HUMPTY’ Show.”
“After 10 years of reading what ALAN thought about sports in the newspaper, I enjoy debating him on the show, face-to-face, every day,” said DIPIETRO. “It's always been our goal to give our listeners an amazing sports talk radio experience and I think the telecast will add another dimension to that.”
“MSG NETWORKS is excited to bring fans inside the studio for the popular ‘HAHN & HUMPTY’ radio show,” said President/CEO ANDREA GREENBERG. “ALAN and RICK are already members of the MSG NETWORKS family, and to have them share their unique perspective on NEW YORK sports on a daily basis is a win for our viewers as well as new fans who will get a peek behind-the-scenes.”
“98.7 ESPN RADIO is excited to work with MSG NETWORKS to bring ‘HAHN & HUMPTY’ to a new audience,” said WEPN SVP/GM TIM MCCARTHY. “In a very short period of time, ALAN and RICK have become a very popular duo with NY fans, and this collaboration is a natural progression to expand their brand and bring more attention to a show that ESPN RADIO is very proud of.”
